In TORCHS Test Rubella IgG value observed 0.48 IU/mL so Dr has suggested to take RVAC vaccination after next period and

Day one of period.

Dr suggested to perform Surgical Evacuation as early as possible to avoid infection and it has been done today (18/02/2013)

Dr taken sample for HPE and POC for Chromosome Analysis. We will receive the reports after 3 days and i will share the same
after that.

I just want to have a secondary advise on this case...Is all treatment are ok or we can do something more to identify the
concurrent miscarriage. All her other reports are normal ( suger/HIV/bilirubin/hemoglobin/HBsAg/Thyroid/Hepatitis C Virus)
Till the time we are in dark and yet to know root cause of concurrent miscarriage.

I would trust your doctor and/or obs/gyno.

I experienced 4 miscarriages in a just over 1 year period, with each pregnancy only having 1 month break inbetween them. It took until the 3rd miscarriage for my private Obs to order DH and I to have several tests to rule out chromosomal abnormalities and other factors. It turned out that I had a clotting disorder and was on asprin for the duration of my pregnancy.

With the amount of time in between the two miscarriages, it is doubtful that the doctor would be going into this amount of testing as yet.

I am so sorry for your losses. It is truly heartbreaking, and I hope that your doctor is able to help you fulfill your dream of a family.

I am sorry for your experience of miscarriage.

I agree with Snuffster. I'm surprised that your doctor is willing to order a chromosomal analysis on the products of concept after only two losses, but it is the most appropriate next test. The other tests for recurrent miscarriage usually involve looking at clotting disorders.

Unfortunately, in most cases the cause of miscarriage is unknown. In my case, even with a history of problems associated with clotting and recurrent miscarriage, my miscarriage was deemed to most likely be bad luck.  Even if the cause had been put down to clotting problems, there are very few treatments, and those have their own side effects.

In cases of chromosomal problems, with the exception of IVF with PGD (only suitable for some chromosomal disorders), there is not much to be done either.

A pregnancy in 2008 followed by one in 2013 is a fairly signficant gap. I would ask my doctor in that situation about other fertility problems, unless of course you had other successful pregnancies in that time.
